Cost-Effective Surface Computing Technology from T1

T1 Visions, a distinctive technology company focusing on interactive touch-screen systems in restaurants, will discuss the latest restaurant technologies during the start-off panel discussion named ‘Fresh Approaches in Foodservice’ on May 22, 2010, at the Chicago-based National Restaurant Association (NRA) show. These new technologies will be discussed by T1 Connection Booth’s inventor and T1 Visions’ President Mike Feldman.

Feldman, a successful IT entrepreneur, founded the Digital Optics Corporation (DOC) during 1991. He sold this company for $60 million. He and Jim Morris, his ex-partner, had invented the Connection Booth that is a robust interactive table. This interactive table is integrated with an audio system, high definition video screen and a touch-screen tabletop for use in night clubs, bars and restaurants.

This booth is being used presently at the Huntersville, N.C.-based T1 Tapas restaurant of T1 Visions. It functions as a market research lab and a showcase for the products of T1 Vision. The CNN has featured both on its headline news titled ‘High-tech Tapas.’ In addition this booth is used at the Charlotte, N.C.-based South Park location and is under installation at a new restaurant named Cowfish in Charlotte, N.C. The digital displays and signs for the Charlotte Convention Center and recently inaugurated NASCAR Hall of Fame Museum have been designed and developed by T1 Visions.

The surface computing technology of T1 Visions has been built on the Mac computer products of Apple. It has considerable cost and size benefits as against comparable technologies like Microsoft’s Surface. Its products possess the thinnest form factor and 50% less cost against comparable technologies. The thickness is below 2 inches.

The patent for the T1 Connection Booth is pending. The Booth, with a big multi-user screen integrated in a dining table seamlessly, is fitted into a standard booth of the restaurant. By programming interactive electronic menus in a touch surface computer, it is possible to provide customers with information related to drinks, food and pricing. A complete 1080p HD screen along with a port box incorporating plug-in hardware for accommodating a range of personal electronic gadgets including the MP3 players, the iPhones and the iPods, is embedded into a wall at the end of the Booth.

Visitors seated at the T1 Connection Booth will be able to customize their environment by selecting individual video and audio settings. They will also be able to view photos, listen to music from their personal electronic gadgets directly or play various engaging interactive games. The Booth’s computer has stored music videos, YouTube videos, photographs and music libraries for providing extra visual and audio entertainment. The business customers’ laptops can also be connected up for providing presentations on the big HD wall monitor to customers.
